Bihar: BJP’s Internal Poll Reveals Workers Want Election Delayed
COVID-19 and ongoing floods cited as biggest reasons for the sway.
In a shocking development, a survey conducted internally in Bihar by the BJP has found that most of its workers want the State Assembly elections to be delayed. The poll has brought to the fore the fact that most BJP workers think issues like the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing floods in many parts of the state could have a negative impact on the re-election campaign of the Nitish Kumar-led coalition government.
The online survey in Bihar has apparently predicted that the NDA alliance will suffer a huge loss in the state. Apart from the survey, the feedback was also taken on video and audio conversations conducted by leaders and their representatives with on-ground BJP workers. The Bihar Legislative Assembly elections are scheduled to be held in October this year. 243 seats will be up for grabs in the polls, which will largely be fought between the BJP-JDU-LJP alliance and the alliance between RJD, Congress and other parties. The Left front is also expected to make its presence felt in the elections.
